Any visit to a new or beloved country is simpler, more enjoyable, and more fulfilling when you have a little bit of the local language under your belt. France is no exception, and Parisians almost demand that you show off some speaking skills, whether to receive decent service in a new favorite café or directions to the most awe-inspiring cultural sites.
With such a beautiful language to its name – is any list of celebrated authors complete without Voltaire and Colette, Camus and Hugo, not to forget Francois de St. Exupéry? – planning a visit to the third most visited city on earth almost requires learning some conversational phrases.
If you’re dreaming of visiting the French capital, galivanting through the lavender fields of Provence, the Mediterranean coast off Nice, or the snow-capped Pyrenees, make the learning process an exciting one by mapping out the material you wish to master by takeoff.
Is your trip planning still contained in your dreams and not this upcoming holiday? Even better! The more time you dedicate to learning French, the more rewarding the payoff will be.
Remember: with 275 million francophones worldwide, you gain access to an incredible list of new countries by pursuing your dreams of learning French. Your horizons will expand as you’ll soon be able to island hop in Polynesia, spot lemurs in Madagascar, and eat delicious poutine in Québéc.
